I’ve been looking for another job and put in an application for a receptionist/sales job at my local Bally’s (never worked out there before). I put down on the application that I’m currently studying for a PT certification and today they called and wanted to schedule an interview for a PT position.
So a couple of questions:
I’m aware that gyms (like Bally’s) give 90 days to become certified to new hires, but how much knowledge/expertise do they really expect?
The cert I’m studying for is by the NCSF. Is this a reputable cert?
From what I’ve gathered from other internet sources, for the most part large gym chains like Bally’s are good places for people to gain experience in the field, and usually aren’t looking for the best of the best PTs. I’m going into this assuming I’ll be training middle-aged, frustrated and rich women hehe
Anyway, please feel free to share your own experiences or offer any advice you may have. Thanks a ton!
